    What’s a good umbrella brand here?

    Looking for a good quality umbrella that I can pick up here that’s small enough to put in a backpack on rainy days. What’s the idea size they use here? I brought a good one with me from USA but I think it’s too heavy.

    Saliva Rapid PCR test in BA

    Last I checked there was a requirement to do s 2nd PCR test after you arrive in Argentina, between the 3rd and 7th day if I recall. Is that right?
